Autumn is the time to replace your summer essential oil scents for those that are more woodsy, warming, and have deeper base notes. Top note oils tend to light and fresh smelling — such as orange, lemon, and spearmint. Middle note oils tend to have a mellowing effect and usually include soft, fragrant oils such as chamomile, nutmeg, and Juniper. Base note oils have a heavy fragrance and tend to linger in the air longer.
Popular Base Note Oils for Autumn
- Cinnamon (middle to base)
- Ylang Ylang (to middle)
Create Your Own Signature Fall Oil Blend
Your custom essential oil blend can certainly include all the fragrant notes from light and citrusy to the heavier base notes listed above. The key to creating your own fall scent when using base notes is to allow one or two drops at a time to prevent the base scent from overpowering your top and middle scents. Also, you may want to keep the number of oils you blend limited to just a few.
For instance, you can create a nice, spiced cider blend with a few drops each of wild orange, cinnamon and ginger. If you desire a woodsy scent for your home, consider cypress, white fir, and sandalwood blended to suit. And for that lighter, fragrant fall smell, use a bit of your citrusy, top notes from the summer to create a signature fall blend that is uplifting and warming — orange sweet oil, lime oil, and cinnamon bark is a great combination to try.
